Last week, Michelle from Nom Nom Paleo posted Food 52′s version of a Thanksgivukkah sandwich (without actual bread of course) on her Facebook page and needless to say, I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard. This recipe’s very much inspired by that photo, but I resolved to make one
Look familiar? This deep chocolatey, rich treat (good for an every once in a while occasion…not daily, right?!) is so easy to make. A couple months back, I posted a very similar recipe with gelatin and some folks wrote in requesting other options for thickeners. I reworked the ingredients just
It’s high time I fessed up to how much of a Paleo loser I am. Growing up, I was sort of a chubby kid. I got boobs earlier than every one of my female classmates. Then I got braces before everyone, too (go me!). I had a weird hair cut,

Some of it’s funny and lighthearted and some of it’s downright
Man, I love soup. It’s warm, filling and a perfect way to bump up veggie consumption without having to gnaw down on a plate of kale (no offense, kale…I still love you). Sometimes, though, it’s just more fun to slurp up a bowl of soup. This recipe’s actually based on
Whether it’s bubbling hot on pizza, ooey gooey on top of a nice juicy burger and swimming in creamy dreamy heaven with macaroni, humans love cheese. And nothing causes as much uproar as when folks find out cheese isn’t part of a Paleo diet. “No sugar? Okay, I know that’s
Dipping sauces can take the same basic meal template and jazz things up to keep you from suffering from FBS (Food Boredom Syndrome). Plain chicken and broccoli again? Drizzle on some Sweet Chili Dipping Sauce. Need an accompaniment for some beautiful cooked, chilled shrimp? This one does the trick, too.
Nuts. Crazy. A few weeks ago, I posted an answer to a reader (hey Kyle H.!) question: ”Peanut butter. Yay or nay?” Poor Kyle. Little did he know he would spark a debate more heated than a Georgia peanut field on a hot July day, and I could feel the peanut
